In my blog I am hoping to share with you my Trash to treasure goodies. My passion is taking old junk and turning it into treasure. I love anything that is old and love it best when it has old paint or is full of rust.

Down below is some of my Trash to Treasure






I made this planter box out of a old ammo box.
You will need a ammo box and 4- 36 inches fence stakes and some screws to attach.
I cut the stake down to to 27 inches. Don't throw away. You will need them to add to side.
Attached the stake to the side of the box with the screws, The points at the top. Take 2 small pieces of wood that you cut off and attached them to the bottom of the stakes.
Now it time to paint. Pick any color to that you love. Than don't forget to sand it down to give it that primitive and old look. Add a clear finish to seal the box. I added a sign that says fresh cut flowers that I had, but you can add anything to give it more color. Now it time to add you flowers. First I put a coco liner that I bought a walmart. It a natural fiber that hold you plants in. You just never know what you can make out to thing you would have throw away.
Let me know if what you have made or come up with.
